Financiers  Differ as to   Probable  Duration of Present Period of
New York, Dec. 12.���In its special financial section the Evening Post publishes the views of various authorities
of repute in the United States and Europe as to the length of time during
which depression would continue to be
felt. AU agree thai restoration to normal conditions cannot occur soon, but
few venture so far as M. Leroy Beau-
lien, the eminent Parisian economic expert, who ventured the prophecy that "a
season of reaction is in store, not for a
few weeks or a few months, hut for several years. Chairman Miller of the Chicago. Milwaukee and St. Paul thinks
that business will not recover from this
reaction for several months, while Mr.
Stuyvesimt Fish would only commit
himself to the general statement that
the period of depression would last till
confidence was restored, and In his
opinion that restoration was dependent on bouse cleaning by corporations
in whose management the country had
lost  faith.
The Post quotes at more length the
diagnosis of Sir Felix Schuster, a member of the Council of India and a gov-
vernor of the Union of London and
Smith's Bank, "one ol the most far-seeing   of   London's   hankers."
Speaking last Wednesday, he said:
Americans have unbounded belief in
the future of their country, a belief
which its naiural resources fully justified. They had also a way of discount
ing the future somewhat too rapidly.

Nelaon, B. C, l&th November, 1301.
Review   of  Proaoects   of   Mainland   and
Island   Mineral   Deposits.
Mining in ihe coast dlatrlcta Ib steadily expanding nnd growing in taport-
anco, and quite recenlly aome valuable
finds of copper in large deposits and
averaging from 2 to 6 per cent . have
been found both along the mainland
coast and on several groups of islands
adjacent thereto, notably a deposit on
Morseby Island and others near Observatory Inlet, ln some cases shipments of ore have already been made
to local smelters, while in others development work is in progress. There
is also considerable more activity on
the west coast of Vancouver Island,
one property in particular at Sydney
Inlet showing up remarkably w��-H. while
the erection of another smelter ai tbe
head of Alberni Canal is und*r contemplation. Again eopsper properties on the
Qu**en Charlotte Island* are Iw-ginning
to attract a good deal of attention, several claims having been recently bonded   at   high figures  here.
The potentialities of the courrry
through which the line of tbe Grand
Trunk Pacific is projected are very enthusiastically regarded hy men who
have prospected in some of these northern districts, notably those of the
Skeena and Telkwa. Coal is distributed in widely separated localities in
the Skeena watershed, and is reported
to have been found on the lower reaches
of the Telkwa river and its tributaries;
the headwaters of the Morice river; Uie
Hulkley river; Driftwood Creek; the
Kitsequecla river; the Kispox and Tte-
satzakwa rivers; th** head of Copper
river and near the head of the Skeena
Ifett. Cnfortunately. however, none
of these coals appear to be coking,
which in view of tbe occirrene-*- in the
neighborhood of large bodies of refractory ores is a matter of some cone���*��� in.
although systematic prospecting in tbe
future may have a more successful issue. Minerals of economic Importance
have been discovered in various sections. These include deposits of galena and copper pyrites at the head of
Kitmat Arm; iron near Port Essington.
and copper ores in the Bulkley Valley
���arias. Many of these deposits are of
great extent, and while in most cases
little more than surface prospecting
has been done, promise exceedingly
well.���From Mines and Minerals for

���Vn important feature of the Japanese
side of Uie Question has not been :
tloned heretofore���the effect in China
of an agitation during Uie past few
months. The Japanese government
vi.iwi with mixed feelings the coming
of the American naval demonstrations
in tbe Pacific, not because of the doul>r
ful intentions af tbe American |U*��r_
ment. but becau-se of Uie fear of the
effect on V9M C-Maeaa mind. The Chinese are being imbued with the idea that
America Is moving in their behalf
against Japan.
